We stayed one night and , apart from the noise of building outside in the street, it was very clean, very convenient, pleasant townto walk around , have meals and coffees etc.
Not far off the motorway, good price and the breakfast, although quite expensive was excellent and a little bit different with smoked salmon and make your own waffles.
Enjoyed our stay and would use it again.

Great attention to detail. The whole family is involved in running the hotel. They were exceedingly helpful and friendly with a real commitment to service excellence. The menu was exciting and we thoroughly enjoyed conversing with the owner for about 15 minutes after the meal.
This is a good hotel for business but perhaps less of a holiday-maker's hotel and definitely not for children. We had a junior suite in the adjacent Park Huis in the grounds of the main house. This is a new building and the rooms are spacious, comfortable and decorated in a contemporary fashion. The bed was a kingsize and was quite comfortable. The lighting was somewhat subdued, which seems to be a modern trend, but my wife was annoyed at the lack of lighting over mirrors, for example. There is a paved walkway through the park to the main house which is inadequately lit. In the dark it is hard to see the path and any twigs or branches blown onto it by the wind. Breakfast is the typical continental breakfast buffet. The only hot food was scrambled or boiled eggs and it was a little pricey at Eu 12.50 pp. The restaurant was excellent - the food is an haute cuisine style but extremely high quality. Price is what you would expect to pay at a similar restaurant in the UK but it is unlikely you would eat here every night of the week.
Picturesque windmills, farms, and villages dot the landscape of Meetjesland, a historical region between Bruges and Ghent. Eeklo, the main town, has a number of notable buildings, including the 17th-century Town Hall. Bicyclists wend their way along the 40-km Leopold Canal, completed in the mid-1800s. A bridge over the canal was the site of a World War II battle and is today a national memorial.
